Continuing under the header of Air, Fire, Water and Earth
The final basic element involved with our awakening is EARTH. This element includes all forms of matter on the planet’s surface, under her skin, and in her oceans—whether organic or otherwise—what we can collectively refer to as Nature. Orchestrating all things in Nature is the consciousness of Gaia. As we are an essential component of Nature, human consciousness is intricately entwined with that of Gaia—along with various other ‘levels’ of consciousness within the overall framework of All That Is. Recalling the metaphor in Part 1 of this blog post, psychologically speaking, we are the Grand Human Psyche hotel situated in the psychic land of Gaia.
Covid-19 (interestingly not a life form1) is an invention of Nature, and thus an integral part of the rich interconnectivity that is fundamental to Nature. Many life forms demonstrate their innate interconnectivity through symbiotic relationships; indeed, symbiosis is Nature’s way of showing us the natural (all of Nature) principle of Cooperation2.
It’s not difficult to imagine what Gaia can do with her earth-body if she needs to reprimand any life form that seeks to take advantage of her supportive personality and giving spirit. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides and suchlike are obvious physical and ‘earthy’ attention grabbing actions she can call upon. However, if need be, as was her way with the dinosaurs and some prehistoric human civilisations3, Gaia can always connect with the Nature of the universe, a Cosmic consciousness that astrologers for many centuries have attempted to connect with, map, and explore.
From a Cosmic consciousness point of view, the continuing life of Gaia is assured despite any changes she needs to make to her physical form because of imbalances inflicted upon her by the currently naïve and arrogant human race—a life form that mistakenly believes it can ‘conquer’ Nature. A poignant Seth quote with my interjections in [square] parentheses:
You will not understand your part within the framework of nature until you actually see yourselves in danger of tearing it apart. You will not destroy consciousness [whatever ‘individualized’ form it takes]. You will not annihilate the consciousness of even one leaf, but in your context, if the problem were not solved, these would fade from your experience. The [covid-19] crisis is a kind of therapy, however. It is a teaching method that you have set up for yourselves because you need it. And you need it now, before your species embarks upon journeys to other physical realities. So you have brought this upon yourself for that purpose and you will learn.
As far as humanity is concerned, before Gaia employs the cosmic arsenal to rid herself of our parasitic presence, she takes her time to connect with our consciousness through the best means at her disposal for getting our attention—a truly ELEMENTary set of traumatic mass events. Her patience is running out though, as we have reached the last day on Gaia’s cosmic calendar for humanity to elevate its collective consciousness and begin refurbishment of the Grand Human Psyche hotel.
Remember that any physical trauma, dis-ease, or illness we personally experience also carries an underlying reason for its appearance—they are the attention grabbers used by our own ‘body-consciousness’4 to get us to review the décor in our room within the GHP hotel.
The kinds of diseases change through historical periods. Some become fashionable, others go out of style. All epidemics, however, are mass statements both biologically and psychically. They point to mass beliefs that have brought about certain physical conditions that are abhorrent at all levels. [My emphasis.] They often go hand-in-hand with war and represent biological protests.
Whenever the conditions of life are such that its quality is threatened, there will be such a mass statement. The quality of life must be at a certain level so that individuals of a species—of any and all species—can develop. In your species, the spiritual, mental and psychic abilities add a dimension that is biologically pertinent.

Fear is the real chronic infection
Fear signals our conscious mind to focus on what we are creating in the moment.
Its message is to have us act on what we are creating (at once, or as soon as possible), for it does not benefit us.
We create fear for two reasons. The first reason is to do with our primal survival mechanism. Our Essence self (soul if you prefer) sends a direct impulse to the conscious mind and body-consciousness in preparation for us to act immediately to protect our physical self. An impulse is our natural way of bypassing thought processing. We have no need to think if a truck is hurtling toward us, just act!
The other reason we create fear is that our Essence self needs to inform us of the psychological factors—usually our beliefs—at play in this moment. Fear tells us that our current beliefs about a subject (for example, death) do not provide sufficient understanding. Fear always arises from a lack of understanding.
Survival, of course, is important, but it is not the prime purpose of a species, in that it is a necessary means by which that species can attain its main goals. Of course [a species] must survive to do so, but it will, however, purposefully avoid survival if the conditions are not practically favorable to maintain the quality of life or existence that is considered basic.
The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events. (Jane Roberts) Session 805.
Now the trouble with traumatic mass events is that people die.
The possibility of death naturally triggers our survival instinct and our ego-self becomes primed to keep us alive whatever the cost. But when there is no immediate danger of death, the ego-self then begins to think, which in turn triggers its beliefs about the subject. And at the heart of these is the deeply entrenched yet mistaken belief that we, and all life, is in a frantic free-for-all game of survival. “Survival of the fittest” is modern man’s neo-Darwinian mantra. We have forgotten that life is all about the flourishment of the cooperative.
Our beliefs about death and what it entails are primitive. We haven’t seriously engaged our thoughts and ideas about death for centuries. This is because the beliefs most of us hold have been insidiously drip-fed to us by others, and because we are afraid to think on the subject, we avoid alternative paths to understanding—such as that provided by the phenomenon of ‘channelling.’5
Scientific beliefs surrounding death tell us that when you die, that’s it, you cease to exist. Hardly surprising then that our ego-self (our belief curator) thinks death heralds the end of its identity, it will stop being—so it panics and rushes off to buy toilet paper and continue its isolation from Nature.
Certain religious doctrines would have us believe that we will survive death, albeit the enjoyment of the life after death depends on the amount of suffering we’ve endured during physical life and whether we’ve stuck to the rules of non-enjoyment. Again, no wonder our ego-selves find solace in hoarding toilet paper and not getting too close to others.
There isn’t space here to bring in all the points I would like to about fear. The new edition of my book It’s About You!: Know Your Self provides an in-depth metaphysical perspective on fear. And if you prefer a brief, less brow-furrowing read on the issue of fear, along with the many feelings and emotions that arise from it, I suggest you take a look at my newly released Feelings Explained: Emotions Tamed: Understanding the Inner Messages Behind Your Emotions, Book 2 in the ‘Being Human’ series.
As far as ‘death’ is concerned, Seth and a growing number of reputable channelled sources (Abraham [Esther Hicks], Elias [Mary Ennis], Bashar [Darryl Anka], Rose [Joanne Helfrich] and Omni [John L. Payne, for example)6 give a consistent alternative view on what happens to us on physical death.
In summary, that alternative view is that death does not end your existence. Indeed, death is nothing like what most currently believe it to be—whether those beliefs stem from scientific or religious indoctrination. Your consciousness simply moves its focus of attention away from the physical plane of space and time for awhile.
[Viruses and infections] …are themselves fragments, struggling small fragments, without intention of harm. [My emphasis.] You have general immunity, believe it or not, to all such viruses and infections. Ideally you can inhabit a plane with them without fear. It is only when you give tacit agreement that harm is inflicted upon you by these fragments.

It’s All About Control
When people are convinced that the self is untrustworthy, for whatever reasons, or that the universe is not safe, then instead of luxuriating in the use of their abilities, exploring the physical and mental environments, they begin to pull in their realities—to contract their abilities, to overcontrol their environments. They become frightened people—and frightened people do not want freedom, mental or physical. They want shelter, a definite set of rules. They want to be told what is good and bad. They lean toward compulsive behavior patterns. They seek out leaders—political, scientific (humorously), or religious–who will order their lives for them.

Elias (Mary Ennis), in conversation about governmental actions to stem the Covid-19 pandemic:
And they ARE taking away: taking away businesses, taking away encouragement, taking away motivation. They are taking away considerably, because that creates a significant avenue to control. When people are afraid and feel helpless, they are very easy to control.
And it is very easy to become swept up in all of this energy, and in that, it is very easy to perpetuate being afraid, because people are depleted because they feel helpless. They don’t know what to do, they don’t know how to structure themselves, they don’t know how to direct themselves, and they feel helpless
Session 202003181 March 18, 2020.
An Elias session conducted on March 18, 2020,7 throws light on the reactions of those in government when it was realized that Covid-19 would be a pandemic. Those holding power, more accurately, those governmental regimes that are used to wielding their power over the populous, are most prone to panic. Fear of losing control of the populous regulates their actions, rather than any fear over what the virus might bring in terms of fatalities.
Eastern governments, like those of China (despite Trump’s adolescent need to disparage their efforts and apportion blame), Japan, South Korea, and especially Taiwan, were found to have regimes that did not panic, but methodically and honestly informed their people of the measures that needed to be taken. Yes, some measures like social isolation appear to be, and are, oppressive, but the compliance of the majority in the relative populations to the ‘tough asks’ is an indication that they find their government to be trustworthy.
The crucial lesson here is that any governmental platform must have the trust of its people for it to quickly and decisively take measures to deal with any future traumatic mass events. The democracies in the West, notably of course that of the USA and Britain, are in such disarray through the Trump arrival and the Brexit departure that the powers that be have instinctively fallen back on a long established method of gaining control—not of the virus, but of the voting populous—through manipulation of the prevailing fear in that populous.
During the coming years of social, economic, and environmental turmoil due to the ongoing and necessary shift in the consciousness of our species, there will be a growing need for governments to impose restrictions on civil liberties. This cannot be done through autocratic dictates issued by untrusted political leaders who purport to be championing democratic principles but are in reality dictators in disguise. The fall of dictatorial regimes is a necessity if humanity is ever going to be able to nourish its interconnectivity, explore its creativity, relinquish judgmental attitudes, and come together as a cohesive, egalitarian global community.
